Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Any experience or feedback? High end brakes, nicely designed.

I have three pair of Zero Gravity brakes. For me they work great. Not everyone thinks they perform like the major group brands. I'm not a clyde and I don't descend, so I never have any issues. But lots of other folks think they are very good too.

I have a thing going on with him right now that is annoying. Too bad, creative guy with some cool looking
designs. If there is anyone who needs a business manager it is Ted.

If this part works out , however, I still want to buy a set of those great looking anodized brakes.

I should have mentioned all my Zero Gravity brakes have come used from ebay. I have never bought new from the source.

I had a set of the original Zero Gravity brakes several years ago. They worked ok for awhile, but after having them reconditioned with a more powerful cam, I could never get them to stay centered, and I sold them.

Ted has a horrible reputation for being bad at business. My experiences with him have always been solid. I spoke with him on the phone once, and when I sent the brakes in for reconditioning, the turn around was quick. That said, I did not think they looked that good after reconditioning. The logo was off-center and crooked. Kind of annoyed me.

I also have experience with the guys at Irish Cycles, and they are top notch. I have nothing but good things to say about them.

I know EE Cycleworks EE brakes cost more, but they are excellent and Craig is also very very nice and helpful.
